July Conversation Series: Alexandra Ochoa

Save the date for the fourth Conversation Series event of 2022, featuring Alexandra Ochoa, who will talk about science for a changing workplace.

Enabling Organizational Culture in a Changing Workplace Environment was the #10 Top 10 Work Trend of 2022. This trend stresses the struggle to maintain a unique organizational identity and “feeling” or sense of the organization as a whole when employees are working in person, remote, hybrid, and internationally away from the office space. What can organizations do to best communicate and maintain their culture when their teams work in different places at different times? How does a company still pass on how it feels to work there, or a sense of belonging, when there are no informal “water cooler chats”?

I-O psychologists can help organizations build stronger relations with their workers in this new environment by identifying ways to reinforce organizational culture and commitment through involving both internal practitioners and their employees in activities and practices that bring them closer together while being apart or distant.

Ochoa is an operations manager at Amazon and is the cofounder of Latinos in Industrial Organization Psychology (LIOP).

Join the conversation from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. EDT July 28. Ochoa will share information and updates live from all of these channels:

Organized by the SIOP Electronic Communication Committee, the SIOP Conversation Series features thought leaders in academia and industry in an “Ask Me Anything” style conversation about their work and I-O-related topics. Listeners will have the opportunity to ask real-time questions and interact with the speaker.
